Officer Ryan Nash, 28, assigned to Lower Manhattan's 1st Precinct, has been revealed as the policeman who rushed to the scene and shot the suspect in the stomach, by New York Councilman Joe Borelli.

The officers ran from the school and Nash spotted the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, 29, shouting and brandishing what turned out to be a paint-ball gun and a pellet gun.

Commissioner James O'Neill says he doesn't think there's a "more humble human being" than Nash, who's been on the force for five years.

Nash and his partner, John Hasiotis, raced to a gruesome sight: A man in a truck had slammed into a school bus after mowing down people in a bike lane. Nash immediately opened fire, hitting Saipov in the abdomen and ending the attack.

In a news conference on Wednesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he had spoken to Nash since the attack. "So in typical fashion of an NYPD cop, he thinks what he did was not an act of heroism".

"While we mourn the awful loss of life and the injuries to innocent people we are proud of and grateful for the quick action of a team of police officers who responded to cries for help and took charge of a chaotic and risky situation". "He did a good job", neighbor Gene Boles said.
